The problem is we have ZERO LEADERSHIP at the highest level of our federal government!!!!! Morning_Joe This would mean you have leadership in Washington - you have nothing in Washington but a kiss your ass love in. Morning_Joe So if you want partisan, non essential, non factual, non informative reporting this is your guy.

Morning_Joe Where is Bill Barr? He said he would come after these companies. Maybe he and Trump just need to know who these companies are so they can enhance their investments. ltgrusselhonore The companies selling these vents to the highest bidder are going to kill people.

UROCKlive1 Isn't unfettered capitalism wonderful. ( sarcasm alert). Is MSNBC asking folks in the Obama administration why supplies were not replenished following the depletion following the swine flu pandemic? Governor Murphy please use the diagnostic powers of New Jersey and start testing your citizens! What you're doing is a f****** crime.

Morning_Joe Instead of being prepared for an emergency 🚨 governors dropped the ball WHY? WHAT WERE THEY SPENDING THEIR MONEY ON Sure feels like some form of ‘war profiteering’. UROCKlive1 MSMBC I pray and write to the FCC you are investigated for all the lies told by your mouthpieces. You don’t have a single journalist left. They are only mouthpieces for hate and division.

Morning_Joe I am in horror at the thought of the trump administration 'taking control' of anything. Lord of the Flies is a better option over trump passing out medical supplies to his sycophants, and letting my mother die. I concur 1000% Morning_Joe The companies that are doing that should be charged with treason.

Morning_Joe How fucking ridiculous....there must be a more united way.
